- Is the Mark of the Beast Actually Voluntary?
Is there a difference between the
"Mark of the Beast", and the
"Seal of the Servants"? If so, what is the difference - how can people know which they have, (or getting)?
- Could someone inadvertently get "the Mark of the Beast", thinking it was the "Seal of the Servants"?
Note: I have also heard the "Seal of the Servants" called the "Mark of the Lamb".
- Or, Could someone mistakenly avoid the "Seal of the Servants", thinking it was the Mark of the Beast"?
Issue: What is to say that the two "marks" are actually the same thing - but that the Book of Revelation might just be disinformation, (from a Jewish point of view).
Or, is this a non-issue: Is the Mark of the Beast Actually Voluntary?
The Seal of the Servants:
NKJV, Ezekiel 9:4 - and the Lord said to him, “Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it.”
NKJV, Ezekiel 9:6 - Utterly slay old and young men, maidens and little children and women; but do not come near anyone on whom is the mark; and begin at My sanctuary.” So they began with the elders who were before the temple.
NKJV, Revelation 7:3 - saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.”
The Mark of the Beast:
NKJV, Revelation 13:17 - and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Note: There is a number of the name, a name, and a mark. The "mark" appears different than "the name" or "number".
It strikes me kind of odd that there is so much analysis on the
"Mark of the Beast", when it seems that the "Mark of the Lamb" might be much, much, more important.
